Behavior

  • Universal Prevention: PBIS Training

    Universal Preveniton PBIS training (Tier 1) for school based behavior team consists of 3 days throughout the school year. Participants will learn the systems, data and practices imbedded in PBIS implementation. The team will draft School-wide Behavior Expectations, create a Behavior Matrix, and plan for team development. The team will develop an acknowledgement plan and create lesson plans based upon their school’s Behavior Matrix. Team will create a chart of office-managed versus classroom-managed behaviors; establish procedures for a continuum of interventions, and plan for kick-off.

    Secondary Prevention: PBIS Training

    Secondary Prevention PBIS training (Tier 2) for school based behavior teams consists of 3 days throughout the school year. This sessions will help teams establish a seamless system of support from Tier 1 to Tier 2 levels of intervention. Each team will learn how to use their Tier 1/Universal data to target groups of students in need of Tier 2/Secondary levels of support. A continuum of Tier 2 interventions to support the behavior of students who are not responding to Tier 1 interventions will be introduced. This session will help teams to create a continuum of Simple Tier 2 interventions. Participants will learn how to implement Check-In/Check-Out. Participants will receive an introduction to the concepts and systems of functional assessment and behavior planning. This session will focus on the process of function-based thinking and guide participants through tools and practices that drive function-based thinking.

    PBIS Overview

    PBIS Overview for Teachers, Staff, and Administrators ... Includes introduction to SWPBS, definition of tiers, priorities for planning, importance of buy-in, and systems change.

    PBIS Apps (SWIS and PBIS Assessment)

    TIPS (Data Meetings for Behavior/Academics)

    Participants will learn the Team Initiated Problem Solving model (TIPS) for running data team meetings. The Model includes information on how to run a behavior team meeting using data and a detailed problem-solving approach.

    Classroom Management

    Functional Behavior Assessment

    Functional Behavior Assessment will cover the 3 step process and provide case studies to follow throughout the training (should be followed by "Designing Interventions Based on FBA Data)

    Designing Interventions Based on FBA data

    Designing Interventions Based on FBA data - will cover further analysis of data collection, matching interventions to functions of behavior, creating PBSP Plans and refining behavioral goal writing and progress monitoring (FBA training is a prerequisite to this session)

    De-Escalation/Conflict-Resolution 

    De-Escalation/Conflict-Resolution - Participants will learn how to develop a peaceful classroom through de-escalation and conflict resolution strategies. (half day) Presenter(s): Alanna McMullan, Irene Reedy, Chanda Tellen
